On July 25, 2022 OFI is launching a modernized My Maine Connection (MMC) portal and will be moving to a new website.

Effective immediately, the option to receive e-notifications on this website will be turned off. Anyone receiving e-notifications will begin to receive paper letters. When the new MMC website is live, you will need to create a new account and re-select your notification preferences. You must do this in order to receive e-notifications on the new website on or after July 25, 2022.

If you already have an MMC account, you will need to create a new account to use this modernized portal. If you have already started an application or other work on this website, you must submit it by July 21, 2022 to prevent losing the information. If you are unable to submit by July 21, 2022, you can start these activities again in the new portal on the new MMC website. You must create a new account to use the new portal. Please visit www.maine.gov/dhhs/ofi for more information on the new MMC portal.
